It is the very nature of art to transform and reflect the cultural and ideological changes of its time. Over the past years, it has been technology that has revolutionized the art industry by providing new artistic mediums and methods of commerce and conducting business. Now with artwork as a Non-Fungible Token (NFT), we are at the forefront of something new and transformative.
What is an NFT, one might ask. Well, NFTs are basically smart contracts produced (or minted) within the blockchain technology. They maintain an undisputable digital record where each NFT represents a unique digital item, and thus cannot be changed. These NFTs are digital files that could be art, audio, videos, items in video games and other forms of creative work. Having always been fascinated by cryptocurrencies and the topic of Decentralized Finance (DeFi), I wanted to be an early incorporator of this amazing technological development into how I presented my art to the world.
On this page, you will be able to find my latest collection of NFT art titled, Beauty in Diversity and DeFi. This series of paintings is an ode to the fascinating world of digital currencies and its disruption of the financial system as we know it, with each painting exploring a different facet of this technology and how it impacts the culture at large. With DeFi quickly finding its place in the public consciousness, this collection is meant to make us question, whether we are ready to explore the possibilities that lay beyond the traditional financial systems and our socio-economic norms.
Beauty in Diversity and DeFi is an exploration of a new method and process recently introduced to the art world. With artwork as a Non-Fungible Token, we are at the precipice of a tech-art renaissance where the future awaits.
